Port Blanc, Quiberon, Brittany, France
Port Blanc in Brittany is an exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach break favours right handers. Sometimes crowded.
